MNPS Field Trip: Carderock Recreation Area Woodlands and Towpath, Montgomery County

  • 05/01/2010
  • 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
  • C & O Canal, MD

This is a wonderful time to get out to see lots of spring wildflowers at this natural gem just outside the beltway. This popular recreational area which includes a rock climbing wall is wedged between the C & O Canal and
the Potomac River, and the wildflowers, wildlife, and blooming trees will be abundant. We will be walking in the woods, on the tow path, and occasionally crossing streams and climbing hills.

Leader: Marney Bruce
